I'm a developmental editor and coach helping fiction writers at all levels bring their novels or scripts to life. I help writers of horror, dystopian sci-fi, and historical fiction shine a light on the injustice, inequity, and dangers lurking in human nature.
Storytelling is in my bones. As a child, I preferred to spend my free time typing up short stories on my mom’s old typewriter. I spent my summers checking out a weekly stack of books at the library (I always nailed the summer reading challenge). And I published my first poem in the Prairie Winds Art Journal at age twelve.
A well-told, meaningful story teaches us how to be human, understand ourselves and others, and be good citizens of the world. It allows us to practice empathy and compassion. It shows us how to resolve the most common and complex of human predicaments. I believe in the power of media to change cultural conversation. My mission is to empower, guide, and raise the voices of writers who believe that real change can happen through the stories we tell.
Stories are powerful. That’s why I’ve devoted my 25+ year career as an actor, writer, screenplay consultant, and children’s theatre instructor to telling meaningful stories and guiding others to tell theirs. I offer honesty, accountability, guidance, and structure to help you finish your story and make it the best it can be.
